One Year since referral

It was one-year ago today that I received my referral for Ava. It was so exciting to see her face for the first time. I couldn't believe how beautiful she was and how lucky I was. She turned out to be just as sweet as she looks. Congratulations to all the families that just received their referral - what an incredible journey you have ahead of you. And to all the families still waiting, I pray that the referrals speed up and that you too will be looking at your child's beautiful face very soon!
